‘Hands on / off’ is a series of public duets that meets an unexpected audience.

A touch does not pass unnoticed; it leaves a mark. The one who touches cannot avoid being touched, and thereby risk exposing herself.
Moving, improvising bodies may challenge norms, something spontaneous may occur. “Hands on/off” lets an unexpecting audience meet the unexpected touch.

Idea and directed by Katrine Kirsebom. After finishing her education as a dance artist and choreographer at the Academy of Theatre and Dance in Amsterdam (SNDO, 1987–91), Katrine Kirsebom has focused on improvisation. A number of her projects research public spaces as a scenic arena:

“I have a kind of hate/love relationship to spaces that are not necessarily advantageous to art, something I find ambiguous and challenging. In a non-scenic space, may another form of intimacy occur than in a traditional stage/hall setting?”
